HobbyCraft Kids Craft Workshop- Clay Animals


We were so excited to go to the HobbyCraft kids Craft Workshop today, at Stevenage HobbyCraft.

We've been wanting to try one of these workshops for a while and pleased to see that the HobbyCraft in Stevenage have started to do loads more options, for kids and adults!

At £5 per child it's £ friendly. Our workshop lasted approx 30 mins which was a good time. All the materials are included and you get to take your creation home with you. The kind teacher even gave us some extra clay to finish adding to the girls designs. The workshops are relaxed, friendly staff, and a family small group so it's not too manic! Our group had 5 children. The workshops are geared at aged 3 up, but my little 2 year old joined and had so much fun, there was no pressure and she created a gorgeous little frog monster. 

I'd definitely recommend these workshops for a crafty morning/ afternoon, or for a rainy day activity, although you have to book in advance!  We had fun browsing the rest of HobbyCraft store afterwards, especially as they have some good sales in at the moment! 

Check out the details and link below for more workshops running this summer at Stevenage. £5 per child. At the moment, the other kids workshops running regularly are:

Kids’ Windchime Making

Kids’ Weaving Pen Pot

Kids’ Personalised Canvas Painting

Kids’ Personalised Keyring

Kids’ Bead Rainbow Making ( 12, 26 August)


I am SOOO tempted to book on an adult one too!
